Tilapia is a tropical genus, indigenous to Southern Africa. Most species will not survive for prolonged periods below about 10C.T. sparrmanii (Smith), the banded bream or vlei kurper, is unusually eurythermal and survives outdoors in places subject to cold winters (Harrison 1963). Thus T. sparrmanii would appear to be an excellent species for investigations into the processes of temperature acclimation.
